MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A woman has testified that she was too drunk to consent to sex the night that former University of Wisconsin football player Quintez Cephus is accused of raping her in his apartment.

The woman testified Wednesday at Cephus’ trial. The 21-year-old former Badgers wide receiver from Macon, Georgia, is charged with second- and third-degree sexual assault after two 18-year-old women reported to police that he had assaulted them on the same night in April 2018. Both women said they were too drunk to consent. Cephus contends the sex was consensual.

The Wisconsin State Journal reports an attorney for Cephus asked the woman who testified Wednesday why she decided to go to police, after initially holding off.

The woman replied she decided to do it after she sobered up “and had some time to think about it.”
